Challenge #250: Give Me A Sign

This is so much fun!! I am loving all of the different solutions, and can't wait to dig into all of them. I'm especially interested to see if I can get @patrick_digan's CharFromInt solution working in my workflow to get the special characters to show up... I couldn't get some of them (like the 🎂) to flow through the reporting tools, so I ended up replacing them with a circle.

Here's my solution. Includes a table letting you know just what the problem letters are if you've got them.

Got wrapped up a bit with the best way to decide which message to use. Looking forward to seeing how others did this.

This was a fun one- I went for the full challenge, though realize when checking for enough rack space I did not take into account spaces so maybe not quite accurate 😀.   Also, I feel like there's a way to get around the repetition for disabling containers, but even the sample workflow did it that way so maybe not?  Oops, just realized I replied to wrong post, but don't see how to change this?

(responding to this post)

@JP_SDAK - perhaps you could union together the results from the text input + the file input? That way, if one of those inputs is disabled or empty, the union will still let the other input flow through (and you wouldn't need to duplicate the remainder of the workflow).

Tougher than I first thought it would be! Great challenge, very enjoyable. My solution limits to 8 char per line, and checks for symbols not included

Found this one tricky and I'm sure my solution is in no way optimal! Find my video walkthrough here nonetheless: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfdL85oftoE&list=PL18SpOXDj-KMUD4YwWC5vZaUsIa7drxNZ&index=54

Definitely a little round about, but it gets the job done! Supports multiple messages at once too!
